Reese Wynan (keyboard player for CB) played on SRV's and he played keys on a cd a good friend of mine put out 2 years ago.

They were a great band. I never discovered them until about 10 years ago when my uncle turned me on to them.

Hells yeah! One of the most under-appreciated bands out there I think...


Understandable, the competition in music during those years was really intense, the quality of bands they were up against IMO hasn't been seen in music since then.

Geo...yeah but Captain Beyond was better than most and not recognized for it. That's my opinion anyway!

I saw them open for Alice Cooper

Afraid I don't remember much from their set

Yes I have a vague memory of them, I did a note and a memo just now. I study notes and the like for a self history in print.

No, I never know about these guys. I did enjoy what I heard.

I've always liked them...have their first two LPs, but on the other hand, it's easy to see why they got lost in the mix. They really weren't doing anything that others--a lot of others--hadn't done before...and better (IMO). But still, like I say, I like them...just not passionate about the product.
